Effort Reporting

Personnel Activity Confirmation (PAC) - Individuals who are paid from or are contributing effort on a sponsored agreement receive a PAC form on a semester basis. The form is an after-the-fact reporting based on payroll records. Effort percentages are mathematically assigned to each funding source based on the distribution of salary for the month. Each employee should review the effort percentages and adjust the percentage on the form, if necessary, to reflect actual effort expended on each project. Federal regulations require effort on federal funds to be equal or greater than the salary paid on the fund.

Any corrections in salary or effort will be documented by returning the form to the employee to recertify the change.
